McMillen Cancer support

After Leigh went through extensive treatment for Breast cancer in 2007/8 we were so grateful for all the help we received that we are trying to give some back and are now giving a presentation about our RTW Tour to raise money for the McMillen cancer support.


I'm just putting the finishing touches to my "Pillions View of the World " presentation .

anyone interested in attending this FREE evening there are 3 ways to book seats .

You can ring 01535 606311 ...or drop a email to... bikeskeighley@colinappleyard.com

or log on to Colin Appleyard ltd on Facebook and find the link to the evening with and book seats there.

Free food and drink on the evening and a Raffle with all proceeds going to McMillen Cancer Support. Plenty of great items to be won on the night.

Hope to see you on the night. Leigh and Dazzer

Leigh and I would like to thank everyone involved in raising over £500 towards the MacMillen Charity

We know many wanted to see what happened on the last 7 months of our trip, we hope you enjoyed it.

Thanks.

New to Horizons Unlimited?

Horizons Unlimited was founded in 1997 by Grant and Susan Johnson following their journey around the world on a BMW R80G/S.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
